Creating Change

Do you need to make a change in your business or personal life? You are always living the physical existence of your internal belief system. Everything that happens around you ultimately comes from a map instilled inside of you. It is up to you alone to create change for yourself, and strip away the parts of you that are not really you or who you want to be. The person that you are before making these conscious changes is based on programming and not on the truth. In this video, Chris Yonker encourages you to accept responsibility for your choices and recognize your own ability to control your thoughts, feelings, and actions to make positive changes.

I recently facilitated a workshop during which several people expressed that their jobs “stressed them out.” If we think of this in …

In this video, I explore the importance of being conscious in not only your speech, but also in your thoughts. I encourage you to tune into the level of your thinking and to ask your self how your thoughts are serving you and your vision.

Would Your Tip Jar be Full?

What do you do to ensure that you are creating a relationship with your customers? I recently went to my local car wash when I saw this tip jar. Apparently “car wash attendant” was as personal as it gets. (I chose not to leave a tip to the generic “attendant.”) On the flip side, one of my favorite coffee shops always has dueling tip jars, like, “Seinfeld or Friends,” “The Simpsons or The Family Guy,” “PB&J or Fluffer-nutter,” and “Batman or Superman?” It may be a simple thing, but the rivalries engage customers, spark conversations and, subsequently, both tip jars always see some action.
